Quote of the Day

“As a child, I never saw a confident woman; I only saw women being abused. That’s why I am here… I want every girl and woman who walks through this door to know that she is loved, no matter who is telling her she isn’t loved.”

– Mary J. Blige, announcing the opening of the Mary J. Blige Center for Women in her hometown of Yonkers, NY (As Samhita noted last year, Mary founded an organization to empower women in their lives and careers.)

And with that, I think it’s time for a little music, no?

“Family Affair”

[Chorus:]
Let’s get it crunk, we gonna’ have fun
Up on in this dancery
We got ya open, now ya floatin’
So you gots to dance for me
Don’t need no hateration, holleratin’
In this dancery
Let’s get it percolatin’, while you’re waiting
So just dance for me

Come on everybody get on up
Cause you know we gots to get it crunk
Mary J. is in the spot tonight
As I’mma make it feel alright (Make it feel alright)
Come on baby just party with me
Let loose and set your body free
Leave your situations at the door
So when you step inside jump on the floor

[Chorus]

It’s only gonna be about a matter of time
Before you get loose and start loose your mind
Cop you a drink, go head and rock your ice
Cause we celebrating No More Drama in our life
With a great track pumpin’, everybody’s jumpin’
Going ahead and twist your back and get your body bumpin’
I told you leave your situations at the door
So grab somebody and get your ass on the dance floor

[Chorus]

We don’t need, don’t need, no haters
Just try to love one another
We just want y’all have a good time
No more drama in your life
Work real hard to make a dime
If you got beef, your problem, not mine
Leave all that BS outside
We’re gonna celebrate all night
Let’s have fun, tonight, no fights
Turn the Dre track way up high
Making you dance all night and I
Got some real heat for ya this time
Doesn’t matter if you’re white or black
Let’s get crunk cause Mary’s back

[Chorus]

    I love Ms. Mary J but it also needs to be noted that she just recorded a song with Chris Brown.
    I know, I know, I’m a huge Debbie Downer, but personally, I can’t reconcile my love with Mary and her pardoning of the non-apologetic-feel-sorry-for-me-even-though-I-am-not-a-victim Chris Brown.
